Give better support to children with early childhood intervention in the NDIS
Making children with a disability feel safe and supported is never easy. With NDIS early intervention, you can better support the development of children who need more help than others.
Early childhood early intervention is about getting better support, sooner. Under the NDIS program, children who are younger than 7 years old with disabilities or developmental delays can develop skills to take part in route daily activities. HealSoul’s disability support workers are here to help you access this support.
The best way to deliver early intervention support through the NDIS is through a tailored approach. Every child is different, and requires a compassionate approach to finding the right care. In the end, the child should feel supported towards discovering their own independence. To give you this support, we start with a free consultation.

To understand what you want to achieve, we look forward to getting to know you through a free consultation.
Early intervention support through the NDIS is designed to provide essential support for children who need more help than others in their development. The NDIS offers funding towards the costs associated with this early intervention for eligible children.
Any child under the age of seven that is living with a disability or developmental delay can access additional support in learning skills essential to daily living. Adults that have acquired a disability that is likely to be permanent and is in its early stages or expected to worsen over time may also be able to access early intervention funding via the NDIS.
To be eligible for the NDIS early intervention funding a child or adult must meet at least the following three requirements:
- Under 65. Early intervention eligibility ceases at the age of 65 when disability support services or aged care services are available.
- Have a permanent impairment either physical, neurological, cognitive, sensory or intellectual that is still in its early stages or expected to worsen over time without intervention.
- Meet residency requirements. Individuals must reside in Australia and be an Australian citizen, or hold a Permanent or Protected Special Category Visa.
There are further, more detailed eligibility criteria that must be met with supporting documentation required before an access request can be granted. Information regarding these criteria can be accessed here.
For support in requesting early intervention access through the NDIS, HealSoul offers free initial consultations to help you get started. Saving you up to $600 in fees.
NDIS early intervention in childhood is intended to help lessen the impact of a child’s impairment upon their functional capacity.
Through early childhood intervention, an individual’s future care needs can be reduced and their independence and confidence increased. During childhood early intervention can have a significant impact on the way a child with additional challenges develops.
At HealSould, we recognise each child is unique and our disability support workers are committed to providing tailored, compassionate care to children. Our goal is to create a fun environment that teaches vital skills to children so they can reach their full potential.
For children younger than seven that are living with a developmental delay or disability, an early childhood partner is recommended. An early childhood partner specialises in helping families and children to get the right level of support.
This can include:
- Connecting them with appropriate community activities and support
- Helping parents gather the necessary information to inform their care
- Goal setting with families regarding their child’s development
- Providing short-term intervention and guidance for children with developmental concerns
- Supporting requests for access to funding where appropriate
For patients older than 65, the NDIS does not offer early intervention funding. In these instances, patients will be referred to disability support or aged care support for assistance.
